You shredded it up.
It's really really good
ok but it is good
It sounds like you're playing really confidently.
What is the big factor in the change of muscianship on this album compared to green?
green was the big factor? You mean the response it got?
no, how lame it is.

I say don't post the mixes.
All of em?
you can't stop us

Wait, just to get this clear, you said you were writing about BBS experiences?
Would you mind elaborating.
whatever makes you feel something
i live in my computer
rivers what ever happened to new joint and cryin and lonely
they bit the proverbial dust
Rivers left for a bit and we chatted amongst ourselves. He came back during the following exchange:
Rivers ever think about going back to Purification of Water? That song sounds so amazing even from the bad qualtiy version posted on the internet.
pow is kinda lame. you people are nuts
talk about nonsense lyrics
well can't really hear the lyrics
from that version
Do you like Blast Off?
i love it
do you like the rest of those demos?
yeah that was fun
i did that in germany
when matt's dad had a stroke
we were stranded for a week in hamburg
i wrote a lot of the b hole then
will you guys ever release it?
the whole thing i mean
duh . . . pinkerton.
but its not pinkerton exactly, right?
I'm not sure how many songs are different.
Even though Serendipedity sucks, that little echo scrach dj club techno effect after 'give me some lovin is cool.
dipity kicks pows ass
but what the hell do i know?
well honestly what is your favorite song of what you have done?
if you had to pick?
No One Else is my favorite.
- officially changing name to "dipity"*
no one else bites ass
- officially think you're lame*
are you still playing the gibsons in the studio?
always have, always will
yeah i have an SG
gibsons sound great
but look lame
the eternal conundrum
I love that show when your like, 'Welcome to the Gibson Explorer, it rocks...'
Im getting paid for sitting here chatting, i feel bad
